    Default Fireworks/laser display (29 Oct)

    Along Marina Promenade and Esplanade Bridge. Show starts from 2000h. CDL and AIG Global Investment showcasing their new skyscraper. Actually it's being built, can see from my 34th storey.

    Hmm....they never say where will they be firing. It should be viewable from Esplanade bridge. Best spot should be Marina Promenade that area from the looks of it. I am not sure what is the quality of fireworks and the height, so will be blocked from my office.
